From the route development people at SR i have heard that SR or SN will start daily service to Mexico City, using an A330 with first class. The route is likely to commence in 2001. What do you think?

Hope it's SR ; ) It would be nice to see them establish a codeshare with AMX or MXA so that those of us who don't live in Mexico City could connect in MEX to this flight. Although I think this is a bit hard since those two are already with Skyteam and Star... still, it isn't unheard of for airlines to establish codeshares outside of their alliance circles .

However, I don't think the A330 has the capability to operate MEX-ZRH or MEX-BRU nonstop, especially considering the 7000ft altitude of the airport. I'd say it was more of a route for the A340-200 or MD-11..

Could this be a codeshare flight with AA via MIA?

How many flights does AA operate from Mexico City?

And BTW, SR117, why do you think, tht the A330-200 could do this flight? IMO, the A332 could be very ell suited for this operation.

If it was an A330 200 with Fist Class it must be SR. Sabena has no F Class!

Gerardo, yeah I think you're right, Aer Lingus operates A332's all the way from Shannon to LAX so I bet SR would have no problem doing that flight to MEX, although it would be the longest A330 flight for them considering that the longest route they currently operate them too is to New Delhi right? ZRH-MEX would take about 11 hours or so ! I think that with a direct route and some good promotion SR could get some good load factors, the economy is doing pretty well right now.

Yep I think SR currently codeshares to MEX on AA.. via MIA and DFW I think, they used to codeshare with AMX to ZRH through Madrid and Atlanta, and they had agreements on flights to GVA through JFK, but that ended when AM went with DL and AF  

BTW Gerardo, remember I mailed you asking you for some spotting tips in ZRH about 6 months ago? Well unfortunatley I didn't get a chance to go spotting when I was in Zurich, and besides the weather wasn't exactly ideal for spotting   however I did get to do some plane watching from the terrace at GVA, very nice ! even though it was snowing, too bad there's not quite much airplane traffic at GVA compared to ZRH.

I learned from one of the members in this forum that AeroMexico had applied for slots at Zurich earlier this year. I really don't know but I think they would only be able to fly there with a codeshare with Swissair. I think the codeshare with Swissair trough Madrid were going well, so thats why both of these carriers seem to be contemplating starting such a route.

Hey, Ricardo, that's you? Sure I remember our emails about 6 months ago.

A pitty, that you didn't come, but you're right, with such a bad weather I wouldn't go either.

Back to the topic: AM had some code share flights MAD-ZRH with SR. Are they now eliminated? And does an airline have to apply for slots, if they plan to only codeshare with another airline?

Yes, AeroMexico stopped codesharing with Swissair because of the Delta-Air France situation. I think that now with Skyteam AeroMexico flies it's passengers to Paris CDG and Air France takes them onward to Zurich.

I'm not an expert, but I think that when a carrier applies for slots at an airport that means that it intends to service that airport with it's own aircraft equipment.
When it's just on codeshare basis, then all the airline does is add it's flight code to the computer reservation systems allowing it to sell a certain amout of seats on the aircraft.

As a matter of fact, I now remember that it was Avion the one who posted the topic on AeroMexico application for slots. I don't know if they really plan on flying there now. It would be nice to see more latin american airlines flying to Zurich. I think a market could be carved out don't you think.

I can confirm that AM has applied for slots to Zurich. It will be an extension of Mexico-Paris. It will be operated by a 767-200.

Thanks!

There would be absolutely no problem for an A330 to operate a route such as MEX-ZRH. Mexico City's 7341ft altitude is not that much of a problem as many people think. But, the thing is, I agree with many in that such route wouldn't have enough demand. It would have to be via some codeshare perhaps with AA via MIA or something like that. It could also work as an AeroMexico continuation of the MEX-MAD flight. Reno_air, where did you get this information?

Reno_air, how do you know about AeroMexico's possible Madrid-Zurich route?

If you are fluent in german you can go to www.jetstream.ch. There they mentioned that AM has applied for slots in Zurich with the routing MEX-CDG-ZRH and return.

To Reno_Air: I went to the Jetstream-website, but didn't find anything about AM. When was that mentioned? Perhaps they have already canceled it, but it would be at least in a Jetstream magazine.
